Who will be John McCain's running mate? Colin Powell? Mitt Romney?

I’ve seen reports online that John McCain may choose retired Army general and former secretary of state Colin Powell as his running mate. Would almost be a reversal of what Barack Obama is doing with Senator Joe Biden. Would it work? I know that Powell supports abortion and affirmative action. Hmmm…I still prefer Mitt Romney, but perhaps McCain might feel that an African-American running mate would be perfect for his ticket. Obama’s chances in November are starting to look more and more nebulous, so why not make things interesting by potentially having the first black vice president?

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!
